What are the Advantages of a 5 Axis CNC Router Machine?

First, the major benefit of 5 axis CNC router is the ability to machine complex shapes in a single set-up. This gives greater machining productivity compared to performing the job in a series of set ups, as well as significantly reducing the time and cost of preparing fixtures. Furthermore, with multiple set-ups, there is always a possibility of incorrect alignment each time the part is moved.

Second, a important advantage of 5 axis CNC router machining is that it enables shorter cutting tools to be used since the head can be lowered towards the job and the cutter oriented towards the surface. As a result, higher cutting speeds can be achieved without putting excessive load on the cutter, so increasing tool life and reducing breakages.

Third, one major benefit from the use of 5 axis CNC router machining is the ability to machine extremely complex parts from solid that would otherwise have to be cast. For prototypes and very small runs, this approach is much quicker and cheaper. It can give lead times of one or two weeks, instead of two months or more that would be needed for castings.

Fourth, also a 5 axis CNC router machining can give huge time savings in the drilling of holes. While this may seem trivial in comparison to the difficulty of machining a complex core or cavity, drilling a series of holes with different compound angles is extremely time consuming. With a five-axis machine, the head can be oriented along the correct axis for each hole automatically, allowing drilling to be completed much more quickly.

Now ChinaCNCzone are supplying two models of 5 axis CNC router machine, they are HY-3040 and HY 6040, compared with industrial level models with larger size, they are mini CNC router type and ideal for hobby CNC use. And also,their prices are really nice and affordable, but their functions really will not let you down.
